According to the AJC, the Atlanta Falcons and cornerback Brent Grimes have agreed to a one-year deal. With Grimes coming off of an Achilles injury and also missing the playoffs the previous year, the market must not have been there for Grimes services and thus Grimes has agreed to a one year deal to redeem himself in the eyes of front office staffs around the league.
How do we feel about this? Obviously we'd like to see some contract numbers but I'm pretty sure everybody here on the blog is excited about the return of Brent Grimes. The return of Grimes now gives us three reliable corners including Asante Samuel and Robert McClain (2013 exclusive rights free agent). It gives the Falcons the flexibility to pick a corner in the draft if the right guy is there but they don't have to reach and take one just because it's a need.
Welcome back Grimey and here's to a healthy 2013!
